Since monster materials such as gems and plates can be hard to get as monster drops, you can use the Elder Melder to meld them instead. These are the items you need to prioritize as they're needed in crafting weapons & gear.

Meld Items Useful In Quests

Items such as potions, bombs, and other things that are useful in quests are also recommended to be melded with the Elder Melder. It is always better to have more of these items that find yourself lacking them.
